    • Semester break dates

      China May 30, 2015 at 5:33 AM

      Hello everyone,
      I would like to know what are the dates of the semester break in China,
      To my understanding, it is very difficult to get train / flight tickets or hostel rooms during semester break due to the large amount of Chinese tourists.

      If you have any tips on how to travel smarter during that season, I would love to hear it. (:

      Thanks a lot!

    • Central station in Beijing

      China May 21, 2015 at 1:13 PM

      Hi, We are arriving from Ulan Bhator at Beijing central station and need to get to Beijing airport for an onward flight to Japan. I have done research into transfers but all the details are from a variety of stations, none of which are referred to as the central station. Can any one help with the name of the station? Also any tips of a quick transfer would be great as we have just under 3 hours to get from the station to the airport (which l understand is about 30 km so should be doable - if l have the right station!)

      Many thanks

    • New Bullet Train

      by AaronW124 Online Now Jul 11, 2014 at 6:32 PM

      I'm having trouble finding information about two aspects of the new bullet train between Xi'an - Pingyao and Pingyao - Beijing.
      1. The link below says that it is now operational as of July 1. Can someone verify this? I thought I had read somewhere that its opening might be delayed until September...
      chinahighlights.com/news/aro...

      2. Travel China Guide's online train ticket booking service shows that this new route is now available. But, this site shows the station as "Pingyao Ancient Town" instead of just "Pingyao". Does anyone know where this new station is?

      Thanks!

      Pingyao to Xian

      by cal6060 Online Now Aug 20, 2011 at 3:25 AM

      I am planning a trip to China mid Oct. I worry I might have problem to get sleeper train ticket from Pingyao to Xian. I will take a train from Beijing to Datong. From Datong to Taiyuan, then Taiyuan to Pingyao. I could either take train from Taiyuan to Xian or Pingyao to Xian(better).

      1)Can I buy the train ticket in Beijing or Datong Train Station in advance?
      or
      2)Can I buy train ticket in Taiyuan Train Station for the Pingyao-->Xian route?

      Local Guide/Driver Taiyuan to Pingyao return

      Hi,

      We are currently putting together our itinerary and organising our trip for April 2010. We would like to find out if anyone knows of a local guide/driver to go from Taiyuan to Pingyao. If so, how much roughly does it cost and is it possible to do a return trip from Taiyuan to Pingyao return in one day and have enough time to see the sights in Pingyao?

      Thanks.

      Pingyao Wall

      by SandiM Online Now Jun 26, 2009 at 11:55 AM

      In September, we are arriving in Pingyao around 10am by train and leaving the next morning (late morning). I am a scenic photographer and want to take photographs from on top of the Wall of the Wall (among other things to photograph). Can you walk the whole way around? If so, how long would it take? Where are the entrances to get up if we are staying at the Yide Hotel (northwest area)? We want to try for early morning or around sundown to get some nice, 'romantic/fantasy/misty' shots of the wall (similar to the ones seen in National Geographic etc). Where are the best places to shoot photos if I want to avoid powerlines, modern homes, people, signposts, etc etc? It sounds silly but I try to photograph my scenery without a lot of 'realism' in it...thanks!

    • Train travel to/from Pingyao

      by shaw1881 Online Now Mar 29, 2009 at 2:30 PM

      In May I am planning to take the high speed (X19) train from Beijing to Xian. On the way back from Xian instead of doing the same, I am considering taking an overnight train to Pingyao and then the next night from Pingyao to Beijing.

      Does anybody have experience with the Xian -> Pingyao and/or Pingyao->Beijing trains? Can you sleep in the compartments (soft sleeper) or is there too much noise from the train making so many stops.

      Also, how hard is it to get tickets. I read somewhere that Pingyao is a small place and doesn't get a very large allotment of sleeper berths.

      Thanks
